There is NO conspiracy, only profit seeking and abuse of knowledge. The current cancer treatments are terrible and after 100 years of research the best they can come up with is chemotherapy that is so ineffective, a sugar pill works better and in many cases the chemo causes cancer to spread.
In 1989, a German biostatistician, Ulrich Abel PhD, after publishing dozens of papers on cancer chemotherapy, wrote a monograph "Chemotherapy of Advanced Epithelial Cancer." It was later published in a shorter form in a peer-reviewed medical journal. Dr. Abel presented a comprehensive analysis of clinical trials and publications representing over 3,000 articles examining the value of cytotoxic chemotherapy on advanced epithelial cancer. Epithelial cancer is the type of cancer we are most familiar with. It arises from epithelium found in the lining of body organs such as breast, prostate, lung, stomach, or bowel.
From these sites cancer usually infiltrates into adjacent tissue and spreads to bone, liver, lung, or the brain. With his exhaustive review Dr. Abel concludes that there is no direct evidence that chemotherapy prolongs survival in patients with advanced carcinoma. He said that in small-cell lung cancer and perhaps ovarian cancer the therapeutic benefit is only slight. Dr. Abel goes on to say, "Many oncologists take it for granted that response to therapy prolongs survival, an opinion which is based on a fallacy and which is not supported by clinical studies."
Over a decade after Dr. Abel’s exhaustive review of chemotherapy, there seems no decrease in its use for advanced carcinoma. For example, when conventional chemotherapy and radiation has not worked to prevent metastases in breast cancer, high-dose chemotherapy (HDC) along with stem-cell transplant (SCT) is the treatment of choice. However, in March 2000, results from the largest multi-center randomized controlled trial conducted thus far showed that, compared to a prolonged course of monthly conventional-dose chemotherapy, HDC and SCT were of no benefit. There was even a slightly lower survival rate for the HDC/SCT group. And the authors noted that serious adverse effects occurred more often in the HDC group than the standard-dose group. There was one treatment-related death (within 100 days of therapy) in the HDC group, but none in the conventional chemotherapy group. The women in this trial were highly selected as having the best chance to respond.
There is also no all-encompassing follow-up study like Dr. Abel’s that tells us if there is any improvement in cancer-survival statistics since 1989. In fact, we need to research whether chemotherapy itself is responsible for secondary cancers instead of progression of the original disease. We need to continue questioning why well-researched alternative cancer treatments aren’t used.
Each cancer patient is worth between $500,000 and $1million dollars to the industry. That is quite the incentive to keep status quo.
Infection is what causes about 99% of all cancers. The B-17 laetrile has been beat up and pounded down very effectively. The primary thing to consider is that if you put a cancer into a healthy person with a good immune system, they will not get that cancer. The reason? The person's immune system gets rid of it. This shows that good immunity and getting rid of infections while focusing on good health through good nutrition and detoxing is primary to preventing cancer. Yet, what does the medical industry do? They POISON the body and destroy the immune system to "CURE" cancer with highly poisonous chemicals? And at an enormous cost. It may be that we need to re-visit the definition of a quack. Just because a lot of high tech machinery, exotic chemicals and clean white suits are promoting this as credible doesn't mean it is. The facts are what they are.
Taking vitamins can also be a problem because many of the vitamins on the market are junk and can actually damage the DNA. It's not the vitamins, but the way they are produced and the source used to make them. We all need vitamins and our food supply is about as close to garbage as one can get. So few nutrients in our foods and lots of poisons that promote infections in the body. I know of only 1 or 2 manufacturers of vitamins that are truly good and work to nourish the body as advertised. It's not easy to be healthy in America.
EDIT: "Chemo-Angel" 1,000 units of good vitamin D3 is very inadequate and the recommended amount according to recent research is about 10,000 units if you have cancer.
EDIT: "Nevada Smith" The China Study is a very biased film that leaves out lots of facts and promotes the agenda that we should not eat meat and dairy. It is a VEGAN agenda that is promoting NON TRUTHS by using some truths to generalize their agenda.
